public interface MimeTypeProvider
MimeTypeProviderinterface defines an API for services which are asked for MIME type mappings for unknown MIME types or extensions.
It is important to understand, that services registered with this interface
are only called as a last resort and that the first service asked and
replying with a non-
null answer wins. Specifically if a MIME
type mapping is configured by default or as an extension to the MIME type
service, MimeTypeProvider services are not queried.
This interface may be implemented by bundles wishing to provide control over how extensions are mapped to MIME types and vice-versa.

A MIME type may be mapped to multiple extensions (e.g.

up to the implementation to select an appropriate extension if multiple
mappings exist for a single MIME type.
